About the pig, I don't have a pattern but I can tell you how I did it! Get a pair of newborn socks (the nicer, the better), preferably one that has a rolled edge like you see on the nose of my pig. They just came that way.

Using 1 sock, The toe of it will become the pig rears end and the cuff (where you put baby's foot in) becomes the rim of the nose. I cut the heel out sort of rounded, so the pig wouldn't have a lump (which was the heel) under his body.

The cut out heel and the other sock become the ears, nose, limbs & tail. You can pretty much lay the pieces out and judge how big you want each limb, ear etc,,,. The tip of the toe of the unused sock is what I used for the end of the snout.

I hand stitched the entire thing because it was small. I didn't stuff the tail, legs or ears. I just turned over the edges & blind stitched them on or whip stitch or whatever stitch that is! I embroidered the nose & eyes. You don't even need nostrils really. He was just as cute w/o them. Hope this helps!
